Urban Waters Partnership

Newark Greenstreets Initiative

Under the auspices of a Local Government Capacity Building grant provided by Together North Jersey (TNJ) and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA), CDM Smith worked with staff from the City of Newark to enhance their ability to identify and act upon opportunities to deploy Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) in the streetscape and on City‐owned land to advance Newark’s Greenstreets Initiative.
This report summarizes research findings, presents best practices and recommendations, and includes a number of technical appendices to support City staff as they continue to build their skills from site identification, to design, to construction documents, to implementation, maintenance and monitoring of GSI projects.
